WIOA Partners: USDA Debuts SNAP E&T Review with Policy Updates, Information on Demand-Driven Practices
Apr 30, 2016

An April 28 advisory from Jessica Shahin, Associate Administrator, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Food and Nutrition Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture

I am pleased to announce an exciting new offering from the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) that will enhance communication about the SNAP Employment and Training Program (SNAP E&T) to States and their stakeholders all across the country.

Today, we're launching the SNAP E&T Review, the first-ever SNAP E&T newsletter that will connect you to national program and policy updates related to SNAP E&T. SNAP E&T Review will feature the latest news about SNAP E&T, information about how to design job-driven SNAP E&T programs, and emerging best practices.

One of FNS' top priorities is working with States to build SNAP E&T programs that can provide SNAP recipients the skills and experience they need to find better jobs and reduce their need for SNAP. We are committed to improving SNAP E&T programs nationally and will be rolling out resources (such as this newsletter) and tools to help your agency incorporate job-driven elements into your E&T programs.

Over the next year, you can expect a continuum of resources featured in the Review, including new publications, workbooks, a new digital platform, webinars, and success stories from SNAP E&T participants. These resources are being made available to all States and their partners interested in learning about and growing high quality SNAP E&T programs.

Please join us in this exciting effort by subscribing to the SNAP E&T Review.
